Rick has been involved with agriculture and the outdoors his entire life. He grew up in western Iowa on the family grain and livestock farm and has been successfully selling farms and ranches in Colorado, Kansas and Nebraska for over 20 years.
After working a couple of years in the Wyoming oilfields, Rick was able to move back home to Iowa and purchase the family farm from his grandparents where he raised corn, soybeans, small grains, and alfalfa in addition to operating a 1500 head cattle feedlot, a farrow to finish hog operation, an 80 head cow herd, and a small trucking business.
In 1994 Rick moved to Akron, Colorado where he ventured into the John Deere business and worked as a salesman and was soon promoted to General Manager of a very successful dealership where he worked until 2002. Rick received his Colorado Real Estate license in 2000 and soon after he decided to devote his attention entirely to the real estate and management industry.
Rick graduated from Western College of Auctioneering in Billings, Montana in June, 2007 and has assisted several auction companies as either an auctioneer or ringman, as well as personally conducting many successful auctions.
Rick has always been an avid outdoorsman and has filled many days either, hunting, fishing or trapping in several states and has a great appreciation for the majesty of the outdoors. Rick was also a volunteer fireman for 20 years. He served at both the local and state levels with the Iowa Cattleman’s Association as a board member and a director, and was named as one of the “Outstanding Young Cattlemen” in the State of Iowa in 1990. Rick is a member of the Western Stock Show Association (Nation Western Stock Show) and currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Greeley Cache La Poudre Pheasants Forever organization.
Rick is very active in his community and church. He and his wife Jessica were married in 2016 and they love to spend time with their children and grandchildren.
Rick is currently a Broker Associate in Colorado and a Salesperson in Nebraska and Kansas, specializing in agricultural and recreational properties. He continues to operate his own cow herd and also consults for several farms and ranches in multiple western states. His life-long involvement in farming, ranching, agri-business and real estate coupled with the dedication he directs towards his clients makes him a great addition to Hayden Outdoors.My Listings
A few years ago I was in a short time frame to complete a complicated 1031 exchange across state lines. I contacted a Colorado agent in the area I was interested in and started to work withthem. We got nowhere until I looked at a property that Rick Kusel had listed.
Rick’s down to earth personality, pickup truck office, and genuine concern for my needs gave me a real lift. We were able to purchase his listing, and then work with him for more properties to complete our 1031 exchange.
A year later we completed another 1031 exchange with Rick that was as successful as the first. He arranged for all of the closings and paperwork. I consider Rick a friend as well as my agent.

Two years ago my wife and I purchased our first home. We encountered some difficulties, first finding what we wanted and second, one we could afford. But Rick Kusel was able to help us find the home we wanted and helped arrange financing, he truly went the extra mile to close our deal. The housing market was crazy at the time and Rick was swamped. Our deal was not very big compared to other deals he was working on but he took the time and went the extra mile for us. Thanks Rick,

I am so pleased to have found Rick Kusel and Hayden Outdoors. Rick was insightful, personable and enjoyable to work with. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble for him. Like a friend, Rick went out of his way to help with multiple tasks to ensure the sale of our out-of-state, family property went smoothly and was a success. I thoroughly recommend Rick and would not hesitate to list with him again.

When we needed to sell our farm outside of Akron, Colorado we listed our property with Rick Kusel.
Living in a small community as we do, property does not sell rapidly or for that matter the price that you are wanting. Rick was very knowledgeable about real estate law and did an excellent job with photos, descriptions, and advertising via newspapers, flyers and online. He was able to answer any questions that we had. Rick was able to sell our property for the asking price. As our property sold faster than expected, Rick helped us find a home in Akron. Rick is very personable and I would recommend him to anyone that is trying to sell their property or purchase property. Thanks Rick,
